Another retrap day

The weather was much the same as yesterday, and so was the resulting catch for this morning. I ringed 27 birds in 9 hours and 18 retraps - a very slow day. A total of 11 species were ringed, including another Black Redstart, a couple of Linnets and a couple of Reed Buntings among the usual suspects. Still haven't seen or heard Willow Warblers around the station so expecting them any day now.

It looks like the wind is starting to lessen over the next couple of days so perhaps birds will start to move again!

This Great Tit was first ringed in autumn 2010 at Gedser Fuglestation and retrapped today
